How Can You Get Involved?
Prayer: Our first need is prayer. Would you pray with us for the young ladies in the program. Pray also that our financial support would continue so we can reach more students with this important program.
Sewing & Volunteering: If you sew, Sew Powerful welcomes you to join the growing number of seamstresses worldwide who make beautiful gift purses for our girls in Zambia. Purse makers are encouraged to join our private Facebook group as well as join or start a local chapter for purse makers. More information about our purse-making program here: https://www.sewpowerful.org/pages/purse-project. Check out other ways to volunteer here: https://www.sewpowerful.org/pages/volunteers-page.
Giving Financial Gifts: Sew Powerful welcomes your financial donations. Your gifts allow Sew Powerful reach more students by increasing our local team. We pay them a living wage to make the pads and the bars of soap needed for the growing distribution of purses. Learn more about how to give here: https://www.sewpowerful.org/pages/donate
It Only Takes A Small Amount To Make A Big Change: Currently, it costs around $5 US to stuff each purse, although costs are beginning to rise. Although Sew Powerful is very frugal with expenditures, current economic challenges during COVID mean the cost of filling each purse is rising. The number of girls being served is also on the rise, as is the need to hire more trainees for our sewing co-op. Sew Powerful is seeking to expand the program in Livingstone, Zambia, as well as to begin meeting urgent needs in Chingola, Zambia. The need is great, and the time to act is now. Please consider joining this worthy cause. Giving online is secure and easy! https://www.sewpowerful.org/pages/donate
